Iran Condemns Terrorist Attack in Kazakhstan’s Almaty


Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi strongly condemned a recent terror attack in the Kazakh city of Almaty, in which gunmen killed at least five people and injured nine others.

Qassemi on Monday underlined that the rise in terrorist acts in neighboring countries has become a major concern for Tehran, calling on all regional nations to jointly fight against the inauspicious phenomenon of terrorism.

“Terror and violence in any form and anywhere are condemned and unacceptable,” the Iranian foreign ministry spokesman said.

At least five people were killed and nine injured in the terrorist attack on a police station in Almaty, Kazakhstan’s largest city.

The figure was announced by Kazakhstan’s Defense Minister Kalmukhanbet Kasymov.

Authorities had reported earlier that three policemen and one civilian had been killed in the attack. The three murdered police officers, who were 24, 28 and 42-year old, were all reportedly married with children.
